The wristlet on the left is, just about, the original pattern, Blackrose by  Suzi Anvin - I had to reduce the number of stitches slightly to compensate for using a thicker yarn than the original. Great pattern, but I don't want to make it over and over again, so on the right I've substituted Branching Out by Susan Lawrence. It's actually a scarf pattern, but it has the same number of stitches as the Blackrose pattern, so I thought it would work. I'm doing the same increases for the thumb gusset, same pattern in fact, just different lace on the back of the hand.


  1. Both patterns are really lovely! Good job:)

  2. They are very pretty! I feel really silly that I just now realized that it is winter where you are. What is the weather like this time of year?

    1. :-) Yes, we're just coming into winter. At the moment we have cold nights and gloriously sunny days, in this part of South Africa. Very wide temperature range, 2*C to 30*C, makes it tricky to dress correctly if you go out early or late in the day.
